So Josh thinks my gourami could be a boy. I'm probably the least reliable with sexing...anything (look at my angel!) so I'm just gonna say he's probably more trustworthy and my fish are just presently genderless beings who are precious and I love them.

I think it's the dorsal fin(is with mine) if it is rounded it is female. Pointed is male.

I can't really see the dorsal fin on your fish Bekah, but fishyfishy pic clearly shows the difference that will exist between males and females. The other indicator specific to pearls in the anal fin. Their fin grows filaments and females are smooth. It appears to me like the fish is a maturing male and that it's anal fin is getting big and a little ragged. From there the filaments grow.

Cool!! Good to know. If I want another four, are girls the way to go? Or maybe another boy and three girls?

From what I read, pearl gouramis are very peaceful and combining males presented few issues.

I had a problem adding a second male (#7) to my 125 and it had to be removed. I don't know if it was just that fish or not, but I fully intend to try again.

In the 55 I would stick with one male.
